I always buy the meat that is on special with a coupon attached to it. Today I went to my local supermarket I won't say their name since I have had other problems with their products and don't want to give them any press at all. I bought a pack of thin pork cutlets for 3.76 with a $1 coupon and a pack of skillet steak for 4.78 with a $2 coupon.
The cashier scanned the $1 twice!
I very politely said, "You scanned the $1 twice by accident."
She shook her head. "No, they were both $1."
I took a breath and try to remain calm. "No, One was $2. That is the reason I got the meat."
She got snippy with me. "Well, I'll check, but I know they are both $1."
Meanwhile the line of people behind me are huffing and sighing. I laugh and try to calm my building anger down.
She puts all the coupons I gave her down on the belt (which are a lot) and huffs and begins looking through them. Low and behold there are the two meat coupons one for a $1 and one for $2.
Very proudly I say, "See I told you and you thought I was lying."
You must always stand up for yourself, speak up for yourself. I try to model for my son how to be an assertive person who doesn't let others hurt her. I show him how to speak his mind while being respectful. We always show respect, especially towards ourselves.
ANYWAY...with this meat I can make two meals with packet for my son and I when hubby works at night. Or this is a perfect portion for all of us for dinner. We don't need left overs. Besides we have dessert after dinner and before bed. that's what the $1 cookies or my banana muffins are for.
Have any of you ever had coupon drama?
